About Bolutife "Bolu" Dosumu, LCSW-S, EMDR Trained

LICENSED CLINICAL SOCIAL WORKER, PSYCHOTHERAPIST.

Many people come to me because they have reached all the milestones in life that society and their culture defines as successful; however, for one reason or another, they still feel lost and empty. Despite all that they have attained, they look good but do not feel good. Not only that, but as a BIPOC, we are taught to not be vulnerable because it displays weakness, something that we strive not to show others. For some, after reaching the top and realizing it is time for break, the stark realization seeks in that we don’t know how to take a break, we were never taught that. Coming from this realm, as your psychotherapist, I would love to offer a safe space where we examine these difficulties with respect to our culture, but no longer sacrificing ourselves and our identities. My name is Bolutife “Bolu” Dosumu, LCSW-S. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Work Supervisor and Psychotherapist with a passion to help others discover their best “you.” Like many of you (my soon to be clients), I hail from a BIPOC, first generation immigrant background.

I have a Bachelors in Criminal Justice and a Masters in Social Worker and Public Administration. As a social worker of 15 years, I have worked in various fields, school, medical and mental health, which I bring to the table in working with clients. I worked with various populations, but my passion lies in working with adolescents and adults that identify with the BIPOC and/or Spiritual community. As Nigerian-American (born in Lagos), child of immigrants and one identifies with Christianity, I believe I can relate to those in the BIPOC and Spiritual communities.

Sharing from my own professional training and experiences, I desire to help others reach the goal of being their best “YOU.”

About Elaia Larios

ADMINSTRATIVE ASSISTANT

My name is Elaia Larios. I am a recent graduate from the University of Texas at Austin with an interest in early childhood and adolescent education, development, and treatment. I am passionate about self-compassion, self-love, and positive energy! My coursework throughout my time at UT focused on positive psychology, mindful self-compassion, and studies of various subjects related to children and adolescents. I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Educational Psychology, and look forward to returning to school and pursuing a career of my own in counseling.

The last several years I have worked as a direct care staff at a residential treatment center for adolescent boys. It was an amazing and gratifying experience, but as a new graduate, I am excited for new challenges and opportunities to work in different settings with different demographics. Joining Glasshouse Effect Psychotherapy Center has been just that! I look forward to connecting with you and helping you with whatever you need as you take on the journey to your best self.


CORE BELIEF

Ever heard the saying, “teach a man to fish versus giving the man the fish?” I am here to help you learn how to acknowledge, manage and solve your own problems…not fix them for you. Many people live under this false notion that they are incapable of properly handling and managing their own lives. They do not believe they have the capacity to think or do for themselves.

 

THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE.

 

I have found that either one is ill-equipped, or they do not know how to properly use the tools they have. As your therapist, at Glasshouse Effect Psychotherapy Center, I will help you “shatter barriers” so that you can “attain freedom

 

My Values

Confidentiality

At Glasshouse, I ensure the confidentiality of clients, except in cases where one’s a danger to themselves or others. I strive to create a safe space where your business stays your business.

Creativity

At Glasshouse, I allow each client to be creative in their own space, no judgements whatsoever. Creativity shows itself in the brightest form when one is able to tap into their authentic expression of self, free and all.

Compassion

At Glasshouse, I extend compassion, not pity. While many have been victimized, I don’t see clients as victims, but as people simply trying to make it. A little compassion can make the journey of life a bit more bearable.

Acceptance

At Glasshouse, I accept all as they are. Come as you are but leave in your best form. Making peace with your complexities is the greatest acceptance of all!
